ECITB Board welcomes new Regional Chairs
The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board(ECITB) has welcomed the appointment of three new Regional Chairs to its Board. The three new Chairs: James Hall (3sun Academy, part of 3sun Group), Kevin Benson (Alstom UK) and Paul Bunyan (C&P Engineering Services) will take up their positions for the ECITB South and East Region, Midlands Region and Wales and the South West Region respectively.
The appointments come at an important time of growth and development for the ECITB. The ECITB, a Non-Departmental Public Body, has a statutory responsibility to develop and secure the UK’s future engineering construction workforce. The ECITB works together with industry and government setting industry-wide standards, providing guidance, advice and practical skills and training support to employers across many vital infrastructure sectors, including energy, chemicals, process industry and food and drink. It plays a key role in driving collective and collaborative solutions at industry and regional levels, helping companies to meet skills and resourcing needs in cost effective, efficient and sustainable ways through a sustainable skills investment fund enabled through the industrial training levy.
